Louis Vuitton joined forces with a number of renowned international designers to create a “collapsible” travel collection of objects as part of Objets Nomades – ‘The Journey’ -that pay homage to the tradition of Special Orders of the House.
Objets Nomades has become a collaboration between renowned designers like Oki Sato of Nendo Studio, Maarten Baas, Thierry Gaugain, Patricia Urquiola, Campana Brothers, Atelier Oi among others.
The European premiere of the traveller collection took place at Design Miami Fair in December 2012. The resulting project can now be seen in Milan.
A mixture of pieces of furniture and travel accessories, all in noble materials (Nomade leather, leather Haute Maroquinerie, metal and precious woods used for the workshops from Louis Vuitton) and mass-produced, limited editions or experimental prototypes that products become in series in the future.
The collection perfectly attenuates to the idea of nomadic traveling.
A desk that is meant for avant-garde writers who probably wish to travel often, a pair of glasses that help you sleep when you are travelling, a Voyage Cabinet designed by the Campana brothers and a hammock by Atelier Oi.
The series currently comprises 16 items (but the collection is expected to grow).
Maracatu, is a cabinet de voyage created by the Campana brothers for Louis Vuitton.
A portable cabinet made from recycled leather scraps, three compartments and a hook that allows you to hang it anywhere.
The hammock by Oï Atelier, a worthy descendant of the traditions of the journey, like the sailors on board their ships and inspired by the savoir-faire of knitwear Louis Vuitton.
A mix of strips of leather iconic Maison, reinforced by rivets gold. For when the relaxation becomes refined.
Some pieces you can see them in the shop in Via Montenapoleone 2 in Milan during the Salone del Mobile.
